Ive been working on a query which should show data from another transaction listing values and items, so something like:-
Shouldbe
By using a query like:-
SELECT `transactions`.`transID`, `transactions`.`dateTime`, `transactions`.`bankTransaction`, `transactions`.`amount`, `transactions`.`status`,
	GROUP_CONCAT(
	  CONCAT(transactions_items.desc,',',transactions_items.`amount`)
	  SEPARATOR '\n'
	) AS 'items',
	
	GROUP_CONCAT(
	  CONCAT(transactions_fields.field,',',transactions_fields.`value`)
	  SEPARATOR '\n'
	) AS 'fields'
FROM `transactions`
LEFT JOIN `transactions_items` ON transactions.`transID` = transactions_items.`transID`
LEFT JOIN `transactions_fields` ON transactions.`transID` = transactions_fields.`transID`
WHERE `transactions`.`accNo` = 'b09ad794ece011e6bffc00155d006d02'
GROUP BY transactions.`transID`

But my issue is Im getting duplicated data from joins showing like:-
Is
Ive put it onto SQLFiddle with some test data in the hope someone can assist me in getting this working

Any ideas what Im doing wrong to show the duplicated data on the GROUP_CONCAT functions?

Thank you in advance
